Daily Fantasy Hockey Notebook | 12-15-17

Updated: December 15, 2017 at 3:42 pm by Brock Seguin

Whether you spend your entire day at work or school, it can be difficult to stay on top of all NHL news. That’s why I have created the Daily Fantasy Notebook, so you can catch up on everything you might have missed throughout the day.

The notebook will be released everyday after teams wrap up their morning skate. It will include a number of things: Injury updates, prominent line changes, goalie rankings and DFS value picks.

While this is obviously more geared towards daily fantasy hockey, it can be just as useful for season-long players as well. Injuries are obviously key, but important line changes could be viewed as as potential waiver wire pickups and the goalie rankings can help you make the tough starting goalie decisions you face on large slates.

Key Injuries


– Antoine Roussel (elbow) will be back in the Stars lineup


– Kyle Palmieri (foot) is questionable to play vs. Dallas


– Mike Zibanejad (concussion) will miss at least two more games
– Taylor Hall (knee contusion) is not expected to play vs. the Stars
– Auston Matthews (upper-body) is not expected to play in Detroit
– Chris Tanev will miss 2-3 weeks with a groin strain
– Brandon Sutter (undisclosed) will miss at least 7-10 more days
